shopping tips
Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.

I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

Rectangular body type how to Choose Marc Jacobs

Rectangular body typesRectangular body type

Rectangular body type: also known as a boyish figure, banana shape, H frame or straight.The top and bottom measurements are about the same size. The waistline is less then 9” smaller then the bust and hips.

Women that have this body shape have a tendency to put on weight on their stomach first then face, chest, and hips.


Wear deep U and V-neck tops and any tops that have some drama to them.

Layered and sheer, asymmetrical, embellished, textured, looser soft tops belted in and structured fitted tops are all good choices. Also pin tuck fitted shirts are great and fairly easy to find.


Gathers that are sewn flat work well, because they don't puff out from the body. Remember, you don't want you to look bigger then you are.

Most necklines will work with your body type, but a scoop or v-neck will be the most flattering. Column sheaths that give definition to the waist and sheaths that have circle skirts are also great choices.

An A-line is one of those dresses you don’t have to worry about your waist or lack of one. The design of the dress automatically eliminates this concern because it curves away from the body at your waist or higher depending on the a-line dress you choose. So spend your energy on length of the dress and accessories

Other dresses that would be flattering on your figure would be a wrap dress and a princess line dress.

Rectangular body type

Goal: Symmetry, keep the shoulders and hips balanced. Anything that gives the illusion that you have curves. What to wear? In general any details on the breast and hips are the best.

Generally for this body type can use fabrics that have a bit of structure to them, like slightly stiffer fabric with some pleating or gathers around the hips. Fitted jackets that go to the top of the hipbone - like a crisp white shirt and an A-line skirt, cinched in at the waist with a belt.

Choose an a-line that has some interesting detail at the top part of the hips like pockets or interesting fabric embellishment.  Also a stiffer fabric with a pattern, if you like will give you symmetry with your top half.

Keep it simple at the hemline. For the rectangular body type, look for an interesting waistband or attention-grabbing belt to help give definition to your waist.

The best pencil for you are those that have detail like flap pockets or patch pockets to accentuate your hips while also creating balance with your top half. 

If you’re a minimalist or like classic chic clothing with very little detail, then look for a simple pencil skirt made of fabric that has some texture or attention-grabbing designs.


Look for some that have interesting pockets for both the front and back or an interesting waistband. Also a pant legs that have curves such as a boot cut or bell-bottom’s will give you a more curvy appearance
